Tesla Model 3 Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model 3: Load Capacity Labeling

It is important to understand how much weight your Model 3 can safely carry. This weight is called the vehicle capacity weight and includes the weight of all occupants, cargo and any additional equipment added to your Model 3 since it was manufactured.

Two labels attached to Model 3 indicate how much weight Model 3 can safely carry.

Both labels are visible on the door pillar when the front door is open.

Note: If your Model 3 is fitted with Tesla accessory wheels or tires, your Model 3 may include an additional label indicating that load capacity may differ from what is stated on the label. If this is the case, instead of referring to the label, refer to the Owner's Manual.

Warning: Overloading Model 3 has an adverse effect on braking and handling, which can compromise your safety or cause damage.

Caution: Never load more than 55 lbs (25 kg) in the front trunk. Doing so can cause damage.

Caution: Never load more than 130 lbs (60 kg) on the rear load floor (above the lower trunk compartment) or more than 285 lbs (130 kg) in the lower trunk compartment. Doing so can cause damage.

Caution: Never store large amounts of liquid in Model 3. A significant spill can cause electrical components to malfunction.

Tire and Loading Information Label

The Tire and Loading Information label provides:

  • The maximum number of occupant seating positions.
  • The maximum vehicle capacity weight.
  • The size of the original tires.
  • The cold inflation pressures for the original front and rear tires. These pressures are recommended to optimize ride and handling characteristics.

Tire and Loading Information Label

Never change this label, even if you use different tires in the future.

Note: If Model 3 is loaded to its full capacity, double check all tires to ensure they are inflated to their recommended pressure levels.
